Turn any paper texture into graph paper

This graph paper tool preset will quickly fill a blank layer with a graph texture grid. Apply it to an empty layer and any paper (or other) texture below it will be instantly turned into graph paper. Not simply a flat grid of blue lines, this grid texture has an organic, print-like texture for a more integrated appearance.
